Frog Fractions 2 takes to Kickstarter, will release in secret

Frog Fractions 2 is to be funded on Kickstarter, but backers won’t get their copy until they track it down in the wild – or the secret gets out.


As you’d expect from a sequel to the surreal edutainment adventure, the For Fractions 2 Kickstarter is not straight forward. Creator Jim Crawford – Twinbeard – is hoping to raise $60,000 to fund a second instalment, which will release as a premium downloadable title for PC, with Linux and Mac ports to follow.

Here’s the thing: the game isn’t called Frog Fractions 2 – it will be released quietly under an entirely different title and a fake developer name. If backers find the game, they can email Crawford to receive their key. Otherwise, they’ll have to wait till the secret becomes common knowledge and Crawford does a mass mail out to all who pledged.

“It will probably be called something like Lost Kingdom: Reckoning by Fork Bomb LLC or Turbo Finance 2015 by Vespenta Holdings. Does that Russian flight sim on Desura look suspicious to you? Better play it just to make sure! Or maybe it’ll be a plugin for Bonzi Buddy and you’ll discover it when your grandpa asks you to make his email go faster. Wait, are you playing Frog Fractions 2 right now?” Crawford teased.

If you have no idea what Frog Fractions is, you’d better go take a look. If you don’t understand, feel free to leave baffled complaints for us to laugh at.

If you’re already in on the joke, throw your money at the Kickstarter. There are a number of terrific rewards and stretch goals on offer.
